BOSTON, BRAINTREE AND QUINCY, MA: Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro P.C., a dynamic full-service law firm with a team of attorneys catering to individuals, businesses and families throughout Quincy, Braintree, the South Shore and metro Boston areas, has partnered with DOVE, a domestic violence assistance organization, on a drive to collect various personal and household items—toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo soap, cleaning supplies, etc.
Starting April 14 through May 30, Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro, P.C. will be collecting these items in containers situated in both their offices at 300 Crown Colony Drive in Quincy and in the Firm’s offices on the fifth floor. The Firm is seeking donations of the following items:
- Personal hygiene – toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, nail clippers
- Bed and bath – shampoo, conditioner, bath towels, washcloths, pillows
- Kitchen – paper towels, Kleenex, disposable utensils/plates, silverware, pots/pans
- Cleaning Supplies – floor cleaner, disinfecting wipes, mops, brooms, Windex
- Feminine hygiene products – sanitary napkins, shaving cream
The general public and fellow tenants of 300 Crown Colony Drive are encouraged to contribute.
“The recent case involving Jared Remy has brought the serious issue of domestic violence to the table. It can be very difficult for some women to leave an abusive situation because of the uncertainty of leaving. DOVE provides the assistance that these women and their children need to make a very difficult and brave decision,” said Paul Barbadoro, a partner at the Firm. “The work DOVE does with victims of domestic violence is exemplary and we’re hoping that our fellow tenants at 300 Crown Colony will agree and assist this very worthy cause.”
The current drive represents the second drive Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro, P.C. have undertaken for DOVE. Last November, the Firm hosted a coat and canned good drive on DOVE’s behalf.
“Now more than ever women in abusive domestic situations need our assistance,” said Claudia Cuscianna, DOVE senior manager of development and communications. “We thank Quincy neighbors at the firm of Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro, P.C. for stepping up to collect these much needed and appreciated items and raise awareness for the families DOVE supports.”
